Used to describe something that is not funny, but to indicate that you should pretend that it is so "intellectual
" pricks will not deride
you as an uncultured, ignorant dolt.
Man is struck in the face with a bat.
Arrogant prick: "OH, HAHAHA, everybody look how funny I think that is!"
Friend: "How can you laugh at that? That's horrible. You don't even sound like you really like it anyway."
: "It's British humor you ignorant, uncultured dolt
! It requires a higher intelligence than you possess to appreciate"
Sheeple: "Oh, it's British humor! I think it's funny too! HAHAHAHA! I'm so glad I'm not an ignorant, uncultured dolt like that guy. HAHAHAHA"
*Looks around to make sure everyone sees him laughing.*
